Bridge Schools for ex-child workers
SAVE implements programs aimed at combating child labor and is committed to getting former child workers back to school. Children who come out of a child labor situation cannot be placed in the regular education system overnight. They have to get used to the school rhythm and need special attention. They are lagging behind in their development and therefore a preparatory bridging year in the 'Bridge Schools' is needed before they can go to a regular school.
SAVE offers bridging education to more than 200 children per year between the ages of 8 and 14 years. SAVE has now established 10 different Bridge Schools. In addition to bridging education, there is also a campaign to make the community aware of the importance of education. SAVE follows children for 3 years after completing bridging education, to investigate whether they remain in the regular school system. The last 4 years is more than 95% of the children continued in the regular school system.
